Last night, I turned in my edits! Wahoo!

It took me about 6 weeks to rewrite the third book in the Cadence of Grace series, but boy oh boy…being on the other side of all that hard work, makes me so excited and thankful for what the story has become. I could have never done it on my own and each time I work on revisions, I’m reminded once again how wonderful my editors are.

I spent the last few days reading the story on an iPad while making changes on my laptop which is a great way to see the story as a “reader” instead of a “writer.” It really helps me catch mistakes and uh oh’s that I may have missed. SO…just for fun, and to celebrate the first round of revisions being done (happy dance!) I thought it would be fun to show you a few behind the scenes bloopers and oopsies that I fixed. ๐Ÿ˜€ย 



  • Lonnie:ย โ€œJust stand right here in the center of the room and itโ€™ll just take a moment. Weโ€™ll want everything to fit you just right.โ€

ย  ย  ย  ย  ย  ย (and we have a theme…JUST sayin’) ๐Ÿ˜‰


  • The kitchen was ajar…

ย  ย  ย  ย  ย  ย  (yes, the whole kitchen stood ajar. Maybe I should just make it the door.)


  • Gideonโ€™s words were near her ear. โ€œI should get back to work, though.โ€ Rising, he reached for his saw and got back to work.

ย  ย  ย  ย  ย  ย  (and I’m glad that’s clear.)ย 


  • Gideon:ย “Lonnie, I’m sorry I didn’t love you as well as I should have in book one.”

ย  ย  ย  ย  ย  ย  (We might have to work on that line.)
